I think that the US Presidential Election needs its own thread. This is such an important issue for us - it shouldn't be buried in the Politics thread. It might start off slowly but, as the election approaches, I would expect it to pick up a lot.
 
As of 1 December, 1,409 candidates had filed a Statement of Candidacy but only a few have a possibility of becoming President.

The main candidates:

Democrats
Hilary Clinton
Martin O'Malley
Bernie Sanders

Republicans
Jeb Bush
Ben Carson
Chris Christie
Ted Cruz
Carly Fiorina
Jim Gilmore
Lindsey Graham
Mike Huckabee
John Kasich
George Pataki
Rand Paul
Marco Rubio
Rick Santorum
Donald Trump

One of these people will be the next President.

If Trump doesn't win the Republican nomination, will he run as an Independent?

Wharever your political persuasion, surely the fact that Trump is even on that list is scary in itself.

He has indicated he would recently, which would destroy it for the Republicans and would nicely confirm my conspiracy theory he is a Clinton plant.

Even more scary he is leading the polls, and scarier still that the guy behind him (Carson) is arguably even stupider.

With Jeb Bush fading, the Republican establishment is banking on Marco Rubio coming through. Although still back in the pack, he must be the most likely nominee at this stage.

Trump, Carson and Cruz are their nightmare candidates. Apart from hating them, they see them as unelectable once it goes to the general election.

Hillary looks a lock as the Demorcatic candidate, very much still open in the Republican race.

Surely the Republicand need someone from the moderate side of their party, they have real issues that the demographics in the US are changing and there ever increasing amounts of non white voters who naturally socially (if not morally Hispanics tend to be religious) sway towards the democrats.

CNN/ORC Poll: Trump alone at the top again

Donald Trump is once again alone at the top of the Republican field, according to the latest CNN/ORC Poll, with 36% of registered Republicans and Republican-leaning independents behind him, while his nearest competitor trails by 20 points.

Trump has managed to somehow come across well here (sort of, shock he's up against Adelson....) -

Bernie Sanders ftw. Really not a fan of Hilary, nor the whole lets have hubby then wifey, daddy then son in office. Way too incestuous, not like they will have vastly different backroom staff so it just keeps the status quo with a different figurehead.

Press release tonight from Trump: "Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on..........."

https://www.donaldjtrump.com/press-releases/donald-j.-trump-statement-on-preventing-muslim-immigration

Clarification with his staff indicates that this includes holiday visas and American Muslims returning from abroad.

Quickly condemned from all sides, even Cruz and Carson, who would look like the extremists in the race if it wasn't for Trump. Jeb Bush's response - "Donald Trump is unhinged."

So he intends to deport 11 million Hispanics, build a wall between the USA and Mexico, create a database of Muslims living in the US and bar all Muslims from entering the country. No wonder he is leading the polls.
